Looks like PMB is running a totalitarian government now. The first thing he did when he returned from London was to warn Nigerians about crossing national red lines, declaring that legitimate and debates about Nigeria could only take place in the National Assembly. He reiterated the same thing again in his Independence Day address.
The National Broadcasting Commission on its own part set revised guidelines for TV and Radio stations back in August, some of which included limiting Newspaper reviews, screening callers and fining stations 500k for allowing callers air “hate speech”.
It’s tough to say which of these problematic rules Cheta Nwanze broke whilst informing the public about the gruesome Asaba Massacre.
I knew it. Immediately I heard the advert running till 2pm. I said to my self something is not right. It's a shame.
